We continued to drive and stop along the road at cape tribulation ...

It was annoying that our days were so cloudy when we were by the beaches. The pictures do not show how special they are ...Here the rain forest came right down to the sandy shore. It was windy but a warm wind and fairly light this time ....    

We had walked a long path through the forest to get to the beach. As we walked back over a strangely coloured stream we noticed there were fish swimming around in it ...


And around every corner a new plant to wonder at ... 

We drove as far as we could ...A store and turning area marked the end ... Though we did drive a little further the road ended and a gravel track started .... 

It was time to meander back home ... Our last stop before the car ferry back was to take in the views from a scenic spot 

We noticed some movement in a tree beside us as we took these pictures ... It was a small parrot ...In fact it turned out to be the smallest parrot in Australia - the Double eyed Fig-Parrot..... And true to form she was munchinmg away on the fig fruits as we watched and tried very hard to photograph her 

A bit of a messy eater isn't she :O) 

None of the pictures came out too well ....Typical ... This one caught the ghost of a noisy myhna ..

Oh well - It was fun trying :O) I wonder if McD did any better ??
